Around the entrance to the mine are stacks of crates and food sacks that are marked as owned. Among these are four pieces of owned corundum ore. The smelter is a few paces further away and has three owned corundum ingots on the ground beside it. Verner Rock-Chucker will buy any corundum ore from you.

Goldenrock Mining CampEdit

The miner's camp is just outside and to the right of the entrance to the mine and consists of a central campfire with four small tents, three of which contain bed rolls and the fourth contains a hay pile. Once you are on friendly terms all of these are unowned and can be used by you. The tents are arranged around the fire with racks behind them for fishing nets. Eight whole salmon hang on these racks.

Goldenrock Mine

The mine has many pickaxes and shovels left lying around. The entrance tunnel descends to the southeast to a T-junction with a corundum ore vein on the ground at the junction and a dead end to the right with a second ore vein. The tunnel continues descending ahead. At the bottom there is a braced section with a bedroll under it along with a couple of food barrels, on top of one of these is a copy of the Heavy Armor skill book Chimarvamidium. The tunnel turns to the northeast and opens out into a larger cavern with wooden scaffolding climbing around a central rock pillar to reach more ore veins. At the bottom on the left are several food sacks and a random greatsword on a stack of crates. Following the ramp up there are two more ore veins on the walls and a small round wooden table with an iron helmet and woodcutter's axe on top and an open crate containing three bottles of Nord mead beside it.
